GA Telesis (GAT) has received four additional firm orders for 737-800SF freighter conversions with Aeronautical Engineers (AEI). The contract was executed by GAT’s LIFT (Leasing, Investments, Finance & Trading) Group. The first of the two originally contracted passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversions was completed in March and delivered to Ethiopian Airlines. The second freighter aircraft is expected to be completed in May 2021.
The additional order will be comprised of three conversion slots in the second half of 2021, with the remaining conversion slot reserved for early 2022. All work will be performed by authorized AEI Conversion Center, Commercial Jet, in Dothan, Alabama. LIFT will continue to evaluate additional 737SF slots and other freighter aircraft models to support the global air cargo industry’s expanding main deck freighter needs.
